Efficiency Through Technology

 

The significance of updating the technology to empower staff to work productively is why Pepkor IT realised that strengthening a WMS would create the kind of working environment that would function at its highest output.

The Problem

Understanding Solutions

Improvements in the supply chain and stock management is vital to the efficiency of the organisation. If you consider that our warehousing covers all the stock for Pep, Ackerman’s, Jay-Jay’s and John Craig then you will understand why a supreme Warehouse Management System (WMS) is necessary.

Greater Accuracy

This WMS was specifically created for greater visibility and optimisation that will give the user the ability for higher accuracy in their day to day dealings. The significance of updating the technology to empower staff to work productively is why a cutting edge WMS would create the kind of working environment that would help them and develop their specific function effectively.

Optimisation

By engineering optimisation algorithms, we have not only made the lives of our staff easier, but the business has benefited as a whole with increased synergy. We used C# to develop a mobile application running on handheld devices that communicate directly to an Oracle Database.

The WMS system was developed within the Oracle Application Development Framework (AFD) while iReports satisfied the reporting requirements that help us to keep track. The team now uses an effective dashboard that was created to make certain that nothing is missed, everything is traceable and ultimate efficiency is maintained throughout the business.
